Sibasagar, Prangan duarah: What is friendship anyway? According to Muhammad Ali, “ Friendship is the most beautiful thing in this world which is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learnt in school, But if you haven’t learnt meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learnt anything”. Some people say it is a relation between two or more people when there is a connection, common interest etc but for me friendship meant a lot more than a common interest or just normal connection. It is the relation which gives you a storm-proof shelter from challenges of your life, troubles, uncertainty and provides you the feeling of comfort and security. It is a relation which adds sparkles of happiness to your life.
Friendship is taking a risk to tell another person something about yourself that you wouldn’t normally say to other or in public, friendship is moving along after an argument as if it never happened. It is a relation in which a group of crazy idiots laugh shamelessly in our face at most embarrassing moment, call you ugly, fat, insult you, but still we fill comfortable around them. Friends are the one who make us strong in tough times, they are the one who push us to break unimaginable rules , no matter how serious you are. They are the one who encourage us, challenge us, motivate us, listen to us which provides an opportunity for our thoughts to disentangle themselves, celebrate every single happiness with us, and most importantly add joy to our life. The way to discover this beautiful relationship only require risk, trust and honesty. Let’s take a minute to check what famous people think about friendship.
